Oh dear… I think about the big day getting closer and closer constantly! I love looking at pictures of everyone’s special day, and I start thinking about what mine will be like! I even start getting choked up already!!!
But the one thing I keep thinking about is how much I am going to cry the day of (tears of joy of course!) I am such a weenie when it comes to lovey stuff, and I can just see myself starting the water works every time I think about seeing my FI or walking down the aisle.
I really hope I’ll be able to hold myself together for the sake of my MU artist and pictures, but it’s making me nervous! lol
How is everyone else feeling?? Am I just a major, emotional softie?
Or those of you who are like me and have already said your ‘I dos’, how did the big day go?

Nah, I usually only cry when I’m sad, but I seem to be a sympathetic crier too. So if I see someone crying at my wedding, you can almost bet I’m gonna tear up too – damn peer pressure!

@KsoontobeN: I *think* I’ll be able to hold it in. We’re doing a first look, and I really really hope I won’t cry and turn my mascara into clown-like markings. Hopefully I’ll just be so giddy that it’ll help control the waterworks.

@LadyElva: haha the peer pressure crying is a tough one! Especially with family!
@HisMoon: we’re doing a first look as well! I have the same fears with my makeup, considering that’s before the wedding even begins! But I want to try and stay just excited-not emotional. I tend to giggle a lot instead of crying when I’m excited which could work in my benefit I suppose

I’ve been married before and I can tell you I was NOT scared, crying, any other emotions. But with DH, I was “giddy” and a little anxious.
We’re overseas and we planned the whole thing while over here so I didn’t have ANY outside help from anyone…except DH. He saw my dress, actually helped me in it once I got it, but during our “first look” photos, you can see how nervous/excited he was….and he was fighting back tears.
The biggest difference between first and second wedding pictures (and I’m not a picture person) was that my second wedding, you can see my natural smile (not faked) and I have to admit until then, I never thought I took a good picture.

I really, really want to hold it together, but who knows. I’m so much more emotional than I used to be. I used to never cry, ever. Now I cry at ridiculous TV shows and commercials. I didn’t think this was supposed to happen until you were pregnant!
We are doing a first look, where I think I’ll be fine. But even though we will have already seen each other, walking down the aisle and the meaning it holds will probably be overwhelming. Le sigh.

- Wedding: August 2013 - The Liberty House
I’m pretty sure I will start crying when I see him and when I’m saying my vows. I’ve accepted this

I expected to be a nervous, emotional wreck the day of the wedding. But I slept the best I had in WEEKS the night before the wedding, woke up calm, and didn’t even have butterflies until seconds before walking down the aisle. I didn’t cry one tear until we were in our room that night; and then I had my little cry in DH’s arms, just processing all the emotions from the day. I couldn’t believe how calm and composed I was all day. NOT what I was expecting!

Pretty sure my dad is going to be a hot mess from the minute he sees me, and my dad crying = instant tears for me. So yeah. It’s going to be hard work to not sob my way down the aisle.

@KsoontobeN: I cry when we discuss certain points. I’m sure I’ll cry day of, but I”m trying to not worry about it

It’s kind of funny, I tear up slightly at everyone else’s weddings (friends, relatives), but for my own I was cool, calm, collected. I was just so sure I was making the best decision of my life that I think the confidence in my DH and marriage totally overrode the sentimental emotions.

If you posted a video of your ceremony, I would cry lol
Weddings turn me into a big baby, I just picture my expensive make -up smearing everywhere…yikes!

Im a sympathetic crier too!! I’m not overly emotional, but I know I’ll cry at my wedding. I’ll probably cry when I’m walking down the aisle, especially if I get a glimpse of my mom because she will be bawling! Lol

I cried during the ceremony, I cried during my maid of honor’s speech, I cried during my husband’s speech. I pretty much cried the whole wedding. And everyone thought it was extremely cute lol. I do not regret it a single bit because the pictures turned out great even with me tearing up in half of them!
